Book Review:

I have read quite a few romantic, suspense books, but I’ve never read an Amish, suspense one. I have to admit that I was a little bit thrown off because while there is crime everywhere, most of the Amish books I’ve read have been quite fluffy. Even though this was a new genre for me, I really enjoyed this book. It’s the first book I’ve read by Ms. Dana R. Lynn, and I will definitely be reading more by her.

Deadly Amish Reunion is the ninth book in the Amish Country Justice series. I’m not sure if this is a standalone series, but I have only read this book. And other than a really strong desire to read Aidan’s (Jennie’s brother’s) book, I was not at all confused. Jennie believed that her husband was dead, so she’s shocked when he saves her and their son. Luke has no memories of his Englischer wife, but he’s determined to protect her and his newfound son.

It was really sweet and hard to watch Jennie and Luke work things out. They did love each other, but they had no idea how to make it work. I loved how Ms. Lynn showed Luke falling in love with Jennie all over again, and Jennie falling for this older, more mature version of Luke. It was especially adorable because they had their son, L.J, to think about. I loved all of L.J.’s parts in the book. He was such a cute character, and it was sweet to see Luke step up to the plate. And while Luke’s family were understandably shocked, they were immediately open to helping Jennie and L.J.

The suspense also kept me guessing until the last minute. There were a lot of different players that I did not at all expect, and there were so many twists and turns in the book. The action never let up until the very end. There are some more mature themes though. Jennie was raped by her stepfather before, but it is not described at all. Also, Jennie sees someone kill another person, and there is quite a bit of shooting at and violence including someone getting beat up. However, the romance side is very clean, and Jennie and Luke really only kiss like twice. All in all just a wonderful, quick read that I would definitely recommend!

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the author. All views expressed are only my honest opinion, I was not required to write a positive review.

Book Review:

This was a cute story that reminds you to trust God through all of life’s circumstances. A Love Redeemed is the first book I have read written by Lisa Jordan and I ended up really enjoying it. Isabella, Bella, is just trying to pick up the pieces of her life. She never expected to stay and help her dad with his dinner or reunite with her childhood friend Tucker. Tucker was running out of options, after his nanny quits he knows he needs help. So when he runs into Bella, he offers up a compromise. She watches his kids and he will help out with the dinner. However, life gets more compliance when they find themselves falling for each other. But how will their love last when Bella is only going to be here for a little while?

I thought that Bella was a really cool character, she was so strong. And I was really jealous of her cooking skills. I loved reading about her interacting with the twins, it was so cute. The twins fell in love with her. However, Bella had her own baggage and I really felt for her as she tried to rebuild her life and help her dad out. She had to make decisions of what was more important to her family or her job. 

Tucker was amazing, he worked so hard. I loved Tucker from the beginning, he was kind and he was a hard worker. He tried so hard to put his life back together after his wife died, but he was struggling. However, he still put his family first and tried his best to juggle life. I was so worried that he was going to break soon, but he had not only his family to help him but also Bella. 

This was a great story. I really liked how Tucker and Bella were friends first. I have to admit I was really worried about how things were going to turn out, but in the end everything worked out well. I adored Tucker’s kids and his family. Family always makes everything better. 

A Love Redeemed reminds you that no matter how hard your life gets, God is still in control and he loves you. I would definitely recommend this book and I can’t wait to read more of Ms. Jordan’s books!

A Father’s Promise

When Wes Bishop comes to the small town of Bliss, he is shocked to discover that he has a daughter. Though he struggles to believe that he is capable of being a father, Wes refuses to leave his new-found child and her mother, Laurel Donovan, who is still drawn to and desires to know. With the tragedies and hurts of the past, can they find forever together?

This was such a sweet book! I love when there are kids in it and Sarah-Jane was so cute! She was such a sweet baby and so loved. Both Wes and Laurel were strong and kind characters. Though they had a lot to learn about each other and being a family, they both loved Sarah-Jane and wanted good for each other. God had brought them through trials and together again to grow in new ways. Through different circumstances, Wes and Laurel are brought together to work on a project in their town. As they work side by side, they grow closer and begin to fall in love. I really liked how Wes and Laurel really sought to understand and help one another. They talked and listened to each other. Even though both were hesitant about a romantic relationship because of the past, they cared for one another. Neither believed that they were meant for love or truly would receive it. Of course, their friends and the others in the town were certainly involved. Between Laurel’s group of friends, a few older ladies who loved to matchmake and their church community, Wes and Laurel were surrounded by people who cared about them and helped them to trust.

This is the first book of those set in Bliss, and was a great set-up for the books that are to come! I hope that some of the characters that were introduced in this book get their own stories, like Laurel’s friends. I have no doubt that some of the matchmakers in town will also make appearances! I enjoyed this book a lot and would recommend it to those who like sweet romances! It is a sweet clean book with a protective hero, strong heroine, an adorable baby, and a HAE!

Laura and Jonathan each try to fight their attraction and focus on business, but it’s not long before Jonathan finds himself confiding in her his other reason for coming to The Sea Glass Inn—he’s trying to find his mentally ill father, who’s recently been spotted at a nearby homeless shelter.

Working together to find Jonathan’s father only brings Laura and Jonathan closer. But with his career and her home on the line, can they ever find common ground?

Book Review:

This was a really cute read and I really enjoyed it. Falling for the Innkeeper is a short, cute read that leaves you wanting more. Falling for the Innkeeper is Meghan Whistler’s debut novel and I would definitely recommend it!

Falling for the Innkeeper has a hero who is disguised as a workaholic, a damsel in distress, who does not need help from anyone, and a lovely little girl to bind them together. Jonathan Masters has buried himself in his work and he is so close to getting his partnership in his firm, all he has to do is convince a woman to sell him a charming Cape Cod inn. Laura Lessoway is trying to pick up the pieces of her life and what better way than to run the inn she loved her whole life. She will do anything to  give her daughter a happy and settled life. But things never go according to plan. 

This was such a fun book, I loved reading about Jonathan as he came to the inn with a plan and everything falling apart when he met Laura. She immediately captures his heart and he finds himself wanting to spend time with her. I thought it was especially cute who he played and cared for Emma, Laura’s daughter. Jonathan is one of my favorite types of heroes, because he seems kind of gruff on the outside and then you actually spend time with him and find that he is a sweetheart. 

Laura was a strong woman but she had some scars from her childhood and previous marriage. She wanted badly to give her daughter a good life and to protect her daughter from the things she had to go through. She didn’t trust herself to choose a good guy and she didn’t trust that people can be different. But then she and Jonathan started to spend time together and she began to see that Jonathan was different. I loved how she gave him the nickname, Harvard. Nicknames help make everything better. 

Falling for the Innkeeper was a really good book and I absolutely adored how it was set in a small town. It really adds to the book, when everyone knows each other. I would definitely recommend this book and I can’t wait to see what else Meghan writes!

Finding the Road Home

Image result for finding the road home tina radcliffe

This was a cute book about learning to trust God and let God lead. Finding the Road Home is the first of Ms. Radcliffe’s books that I have read, but I loved it.  I am definitely going to be reading more of her books! This was such a cute read, with lovable characters.

Daisy Anderson moves to a small town in order to care for her nieces and nephews. But it looks like Daisy may be out of work because of budget cuts. Luckily police chief Mitch Rainbolt will do everything he can to help Daisy. But what happens when their fight leads to something neither of them dared to wish for: a future together?

Daisy was amazing, she was raising her newly orphaned nieces and nephews all while starting a new job and moving to a new town. She was so cool, but she also had her faults. She has learned that it is better to do things herself, and so she has a harder time asking for help. But she will do anything for the children. 

I loved Mitch. He was so sweet, but he was also broken. He tried so hard to protect everyone. Mitch comes off as a tough guy, but he was really just a softy. I really enjoyed reading how he interacted with the kids, they loved him. It was so cute.

The side characters made this book so much better.. I loved watching the children with Daisy and Mitch. The police officers were so funny. I can’t wait to read about the other characters!

This was a great book, with a wonderful message. I can’t wait for the next book to come!

A Mother’s Secret

Wow, this was such a touching book! This is the first book that I have read of Gabrielle Meyer’s and I loved it. It was such a sweet book that taught you how to forgive and trust God even when things feel crazy. 

A Mother’s Secret is a book that tells the story about a young single mom trying to raise 5 children on her own, two are her own and the other three she is fostering. She loves her kids, but it isn’t easy being a single mom especially when the past starts to creep up.

Chase Asher thought that this was going to be an easy job, get in and get out. But things do not go the way he thought it would, God has different plans for Chase. He will have to decide how he will respond and what kind of person he wants to be.

Joy Gordon was such a cool person. She didn’t grow up with a good home and so she wanted to make sure that her children never had to go through what she went through. She loved her children and wanted the best for them. It was so amazing how she tried so hard to give her kids a good home, not only providing everything they need but also giving them a loving and caring environment.

I fell in love with Chase at the beginning. He was so kind. He had made some mistakes before, but he was trying to do his best to make up for it. I really felt for him, as he learned not to let his fear of his father control him and instead do the right thing, even though it was hard.

Joy and Chase were really sweet together and they encouraged each other as they tried to work through the obstacles that were thrown at them. I loved as they did their best to show the children love and encourage them. The children were so sweet, I loved the girls from the beginning and it was so cute how the boys looked up to Chase. 

This book reminded me to trust God even when life feels crazy. Joy and Chase had to figure out what they would do when it doesn’t look like things will work out. But in the end they learn that God is faithful. 

I am so glad that I read this book. It had a wonderful story with lovely characters. A Mother’s Secret also taught me lessons. I am so excited to read more of Gabrielle Meyer books. I give this book 5 stars!

Her Rocky Mountain Hope


“I learned to release control.” And I fell in love. “Instead of trying to control the life God gave me, I discovered how to entrust Him with that life.”

This is a wonderful contemporary read and I am so glad that I took the chance on. At first glance, I could tell that this was going to be a cute book, but it was even better than I thought! 

Blythe McDonald has spent her whole life living on the safe side of life. She had been coddled her whole life and she has accepted that this is the way she will live life. But one day when she is observing a summer camp for children with cancer, she starts to see that she can let loose and have fun. But what will she do when things start to fall apart? Will she learn to trust God or revert back to her old ways?

Daniel Stephens has been looking for his calling and he finally feels as if he has found it. He wants to bring joy to children who have cancer. He wants to give them a camp they can go to in order to enjoy themselves and have fun. But it all depends on whether Blythe feels as if he deserves to have the money for his camp. He will have to learn to trust God even when things don’t go his way.

I really related to Blythe, she lives life the way I live life, always being careful, always having a plan. So it really hit me when she was given obstacles that forced her to learn how to lean on God. I loved reading about her grow in her faith and watching her fall in love with Daniel.

Daniel was so amazing to me. He had a great faith in God, even though he has gone some hard things. He was also very adventurous which I thought was so cool and he really loved the children he was trying to serve through his camp. 

I thought that Daniel and Blythe really balanced each other out. He showed her how to trust God and face her fears, and Blythe helped keep Daniel grounded. They were so sweet and cute together and they worked so hard to make sure that the children who came to their camps were having a good time. But what will happen will their worlds start to shake, will they band together or will they fall apart?

I loved this book and now I really want to read the other books, I accidentally read the 5th book first :). This was a great clean, christian book.  I would definitely recommend this book and I can’t wait to see what else this author writes!
